Question for Wealth of Nations

Written by randy on September 9th, 2008

I run into people all the time who feel a deep-seated anger at the forces of economic and social prosperity that were unleased by the ideas that were disseminated by Adam Smith in The Wealth of Nations. For this week’s post, I am interested in your thoughts about why people would be opposed to things like division of labor, specilization and gains from trade. Would the world have been better off without Adam Smith and others of his ilk?
